About Park Street
Park Street provides specialist support for up to four adults with autism and associated complex needs to develop the skills needed to live more independently. Our experienced and caring team are on hand to provide just the right level of support for each individual.
Our approach to support:
At Park Street, everyone is involved in producing their own Person Centred Plan, which focuses on positive outcomes such as developing independent living skills, social inclusion, further education and leisure interests.
We enable everyone to create their own activities timetable which includes hobbies such as swimming, music and horse riding. We also support people to complete work placements or find employment, and be involved in local community activities.
Through the ‘Your Voice’ initiative, individuals voice their views about the service they receive, using their preferred communication method. ‘Your Voice’ is all about listening to the wishes of individuals, and enabling people to exercise choice and control over their lives.
Our services include:
- Staffing ratios based on individual needs, with one-to-one support where required
- Highly-experienced, NVQ-qualified staff team providing 24 hour support
- Close links with the community learning disability team, including physiotherapists, occupational therapists and speech and language specialists
What it’s like to live here:
At Park Street we can provide people with access to a skills centre at The Old Rectory where they can learn about cooking, PC skills and gardening. We also have a working allotment where people can grow their own fruit and vegetables and help look after the chickens.
Within the home we offer art, sensory and music sessions, as well as a wide variety of in-house social events, trips and outings, and community activities.
Park Street can also support individuals to complete work placements or find employment, and we provide encouragement for people to maintain and develop social contacts within the community.
We are located close to the centre of Trowbridge, with shopping centres, museums, theatres, swimming pools, a gym and colleges all within easy walking distance. There is a train station and bus stops nearby, providing good transport links to other towns and cities.
